Hello there!


Daniel Schutzsmith is a rare breed – a hybrid of equal parts design, code, and strategy.

Over the past 19 years he's had the privilege of working with companies such as Adobe, Greenpeace, Dave Matthews Band, Women’s March, They Might Be Giants, Pixies, Sony Picture Classics, Oxfam, AMC, International Women’s Health Coalition, TBS, San Diego Zoo, Race Forward, PBS & more.

In his free time he enjoys inspirational wanderings through the streets of NYC, single malt scotches, and beach time with his family. He calls Tampa, Florida and Hoboken, NJ home.
